Newton's Apple Tree Monash University

Newton's Apple tree,
the Flower of Kent variety,
was planted in 1975 and is
a cutting from the original tree
from which Sir Isaac Newton
reportedly observed an
apple fall, prompting him to
formulate his theories of
motion and gravity, one of the
most remarkable insights in
human history.
